More Consequences

These next few images just scream to be put out there (happy to remove this particular post should there be any objections)


It was a struggle to put these up on this page, since they are not directly related to our refugee action support work, but go more to Leadership, Vision and Moral Integrity, all attributes, which if they were present in our Parliament (and particularly Government of course), would directly and positively impact on the refugee / asylum seeker crisis we have been burdened with for years, and from all sides of politics.

Nevertheless, leadership, vision, integrity are certainly "Something To Think About"...

Please look beyond the actual image content.......  while it may represent pressing and existential issues, ours is not a climate action group.


The post for this date, is more oriented to questions of competence, leadership, courage, vision, integrity, so lacking among the people that we as a nation, actually voted for, to represent us and progress this country into a future which is better in every way, than the past.

So, with that coda......

How many "Leaders" can you count on this planet? Heres one to get you started.

A more nuanced version of the same speech.

Poor spuds....  pilloried, boiled, roasted, mashed...  (and all because they share an unfortunate resemblance)
